Knoxville woman celebrates 105th birthday with motorcycle ride
Helen Akard retired from Regions Bank at 93 and spent 70 years as a loan officer. Now, the Knoxville woman spends her days waiting on adventures as she celebrated her 105th birthday with friends and family Friday afternoon.
In her 20s Akard was an avid motorcycle rider because she liked the way it felt going fast and feeling the wind.
On her 105th birthday, Akard was surprised by an East Tennessee biker group who took her on a ride around the neighborhood.
